in the "new york times," and the tax policy institute, which is certainly not a right of center institution, i think it would be slightly left of center, at least center -- if you cap deductions at $50,000 it generates $750 billion over 10 years. if you do the chain cpi, which i think mark has embraced. >> do you include charitables in that camp? >> you can include charitables, or you can also look at the health-care exclusion, which by the way is the most massive that exists. i do not know why people in the income categories that mark and i are in and now tim with his big budget job -- i do not know. >> bob, i hate to tell you, he is in a higher category than you. [laughter] >> they will publish that soon, i am sure. i do not know why we should continue to have the benefit of our health care plans coming to us in a tax-free way. there are all kinds of ways of looking at it. i do realize that to do real tax reform takes time, but i think we could go ahead and do some things. for instance, the $50,000 exclusion -- i realize that has been a non starter so far. i actually think we will end up wit

dramatically as a matter of fact. why are prices going down and how far? abc's john schriffen is in new york city with some answers. john, good morning. >> reporter: dan, good morning. experts say one of the reasons prices are going down, because after issues earlier this year refineries are back up and running at normal capacity on the east and west coast. with plenty of gas to go around, we'll actually see prices keep falling. drivers can play a game of driver limbo. see how low these prices will go. this weekend, as drivers pull up to the pump and check out the price of gas, they're noticing a welcome trend. >> they're lowering it. it's amazing. >> reporter: just how great has it been? take a look. a month ago, the average was $3.50. last week, it dropped to $3.40. and now, it's down, again, nearly 14 cents from the average a month ago. >> aaa's prediction is that, by christmas, we should have prices between $3.20 and $3.40. >> i'm thrilled. i mean, i have to buy gas no matter what, the fact that it costs a little bit less with christmas coming up. >> reporter: so, what's causing the sudd

that much compared to the alternatives on the table. this point was made at new york magazine. it has symbolic power and fiscal skulls. meager and inefficient though the savings may be, they pack a lot of punch. that's what np fp meant when she called it a trophy. republicans see this as a big win for them. big. and that's kind of the white house's quiet argument. it's a terrible policy, but because obama care and employers and others are there to catch a lot of these people, it might get more votes while doing less harm to seniors than the alternatives. you can prevent gas with beano meltaways, or treat gas with these after you get it. now that's like sunblock before or sun burn cream later. oh, somebody out there's saying, now i get it! take beano before and there'll be no gas. take beano before i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i looked at my options. then i got a medicare supplement insurance plan.

the conservative movement type here in d.c. and members of congress themselves. and the "new york times" today talks about the meeting up on the hill where boehner has so much support. >> right. >> among his own conference and yet you talk to heritage or club for growth or anybody like that and they'll say we don't want a deal. they're getting to the point where they don't want a deal. >> but wait a minute. there is a third group. look at bobby jindal. how about what jindal said? who is no moderate. let's not pretend the guy tries to say he is a moderate and he said hum. apparently the republican position is protect the rich to cut old people. >> right. exactly. so you're finding everyone now squeezing in their message and trying to push boehner in a direction toward making a move. i think boehner actually has controlled this pretty well given the pitfalls that he has in front of him. and i think that basically you've got his caucus now saying, we're with you in this fight. we'll follow you through the door. that's a good spot for him to be in. >> so what is the white house -- do they just wai

: the next caller is from new york, the democrats' line. good morning. caller: good morning. thank you for taking my call and thank you, c-span. i am a widow and at this time my daughter in law and my granddaughter -- i have been supporting them since july of this year. rent, all of the expenses, going to school, etc. would i be able to claim them this year on my taxes? i do not make a big income. i was inquiring if i could claim them or not. guest: i am not giving you any tax advice. i really cannot do that. being able to claim your daughter and your grandchild as a dependent on your taxes depends on a lot of different things, and one of them is are they providing -- are you providing more than half of your support for them? are they living with you? another thing you would need to look at is your daughter making and the income whatsoever even if it is a small job that she has on the side or a part-time job. that would probably make her ineligible to be claimed by you. the irs instructions are very good. you can go online and get last year's instructions because the rules are not goin
